Spring’s Debutantes (NPM ’16-Day 16)

16 Apr

Spring’s Debutantes

Party deb Pansy and, before her, Crocus
whisper in royal shades of an amethyst queen.
Frilly Lilac and loose-limbed Wisteria
trailing scented clouds of hocus-pocus
languid on trellis and bower lean.
The starchy Tulip sisters dressed in flames
bring to this dance a daring new criteria,
strut a bold contrast to spring’s purple dames.

Well, we’re over halfway through the month and still on track for writing one poem a day!

This poem is in the form of a san san—a new form to me. The 8-line san san has a set pattern of rhymes (a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d), and is supposed to contain three images. Read about it here.

    Oh, they ARE debutantes! And your poem celebrates them merrily. I really want some wisteria… Yay for keeping on keeping on. April is a reminder that we can do it! xx

      I wish you some wisteria, then, Amy! I don’t have any myself but pass by a gazebo draped in it every day. Now that it’s coming into bloom, it sure is something! And thanks for introducing me to Wonderopolis. I check out their topics every April day and have another poem inspired by them coming up.

    Violet, I think the party aspect you presented is so lively and today is the perfect day to read this. The world is bright, sunny, and people are everywhere. I would love to try out the new form you introduced.
